This is an awesome video and brings back memories of all the times this has happened... I'm sure lots of my friends know the feelings it describes!

Reason to buy Android: it's not an iPhone.. Plain and simple!
Apple users are now receiving a pretty strong incentive to swap to Android. An emerging iPhone ‘feature’ is discovered to brick devices that were repaired by non-Apple entities. When a user upgrades to the latest version of iOS 9, some are reporting an “error 53” that renders the device unusable. Although the phone may have been functioning perfectly for weeks or months after a repair job, this error will effectively render the handset inoperable...

Very ironic name for the move, considering its advisable not to attempt this if you have one... :P
18-year-old gymnast Marisa Dick created a new gymnastics move that now bears her name—one you shouldn't attempt it if you ever want children. It's a jump from the floor to a balance beam

This what I am doing with my b+ pi this weekend. This way I will have a log of my internet speeds. Danny, I think you need to look into this too :)

I log the rain, weather, nest activities, garage door activities with IFTTT and this weekend I am adding a humidity and temperature sensor for the garage through a pi zero, so I might as well also make this with a B+.

So if you ever need to buy me a cheap present...more raspberry pis will do. I am going to make a magic mirror soon, I have one in the arcade, working on my scale project...always need more pis :P
Outages with your broadband can drive you to frustration, but you can use the Raspberry Pi, and command line scripting to monitor it.

+Kelly Love booked us a night at the Harpa concert hall in Iceland and part of the show was a 45 minute (could have been shorter but it felt at least 45 minutes long) movie (trailer seen at link). It was subtitled by what I assume is an alien language along with a translation. Had some memorable quotable subtitle moments like: "No more lion", "death by metabolism" and more. I wonder when this film will see a U.S. release? I have no way of describing this to anyone. Even the trailer does not seem to do it justice. Adult swim specials are to tame for this.

Today I discovered that google wallet no longer lets me reload it with a credit card when I just did that a couple weeks ago. I found an article about this dated April 2015 but this just happened to me. Has anyone else had this happen lately..or noticed?

Story
Tagline
An Engineer and a Geek....or vice versa :P
Introduction
Electrical engineer and all around geek. Into latest technology, video games, comics, anime and anything geeky really.

I am the goto guy for all my friends when they want advise on the newest tablet, home theater system, pc setup, surveillance unit...anything. Even as simple as best coffee maker.

I started a website for pc repairs as a hobby but have no time to actually work on it, however every month I end up repairing at least one friends computer for free. That doesn't mean if you add me in your circle you will get free repairs :P

Ask me if you want more information. I might tell you ;)

Very big Barnes and noble and always stop by to see if they have any of my favorite board games on clearance there. They always exchange board games bought from there from friends, without the receipt, which is convenient for me as friends will sometimes get me a game I already have. (Some say it's because I have too many board games already..I day bahumbug to them!)

Classic Starbucks service but very busy during morning today hour and have gotten my order wrong a couple of times and unlike other Starbucks, they didn't offer to change it. OK but not a preferred location. Just convenient when I was there for a business trip.

Very nice staff, well organized layout. Free parking would have been appreciated. The hotel is pricey enough to include that in price

I started going to Jim's since I moved to Norwood in 2007 but in 2013 I bought a house right next door. Was convenient to drop off car and walk home. But until recently all I did was oil and filter changes. Well, yesterday I needed a new alternator. I knew it was about to die due to a noise it was making and my car battery voltage being low all the time (read with a Bluetooth obd adaptor). Friday morning I scheduled to go in for an oil/filter change and to have that looked at. Friday afternoon my car died. Charged up the battery enough so I could drive it to Jim's Monday morning and drop off car at 8am. Told them I would need a new battery and to check if indeed the alternator was fine it or had no life left. At 12 I got a call from Danny there saying I need a new alternator. New alternator, new battery, oil/filter change and work all for a very reasonable price (still hurt when I heard the amount, but I had done enough research to know that others can charge up to 3 times the amount and take up to two weeks to fix this). Picked up car same day all fixed up. You could tell the alternator issue was also the cause of a slight whistling noise when using the aux input in the car. That noise is gone now. I'm glad I have a reliable mechanic shop that is right around the corner and i don't have to be related to the mechanic so I can get the work done right and affordable.

Very nice gyro and beefteki wraps... But do not taste anything like the original Greek type. Have a unique taste to them. Very nice, but for a Greek like myself, not something I would go for every time. But great fit occasional tripod for different style Greek food!

This is one of the only places here in the U.S. that has the meat on the spit and slices the meat. I lived for 15 years in Greece and most places have poor quality meat and you need to k ow the right place to go to for quality meat. Well the feisty Greek is quality meat. Best place for Greek food here in the U.S. Also makes Greek souvlaki the right way..with no lettuce. The Tzatziki is very good although I like it with more Garlic but you only get it that way when its home made. He has the right amount for a restaurant version of tzatziki. Anytime Im in the mood for Greek food I go there. I only wish they delivered in the afternoon cause I am often too lazy to go out :P Defintely would recommend to try if you are in the area and if you are not, go there so you know how Greek Gyro should be. (By the way, there is a whole dispute between Athenians and Thesalonikians about what is a souvlaki and they side with Thesalonikians so if you want the spit, order Gyro, if you want the meat on a stick they call that souvlaki..Athenians call that Kalamaki..I call them food and dont argue when im hungry)!
